Fees

Catholic systemic schools aim to keep their fees as low as possible and can provide flexible payment arrangements for families. Students who meet the enrolment criteria will not be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to afford school fees. Schools are able to reduce or waive fees for families suffering financial hardship.

There are three levels of annual fees, billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3:

  • Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees set by the Catholic Education Office
  • Diocesan Building Levy set by the Catholic Education Office
  • School-Based fees

There are very significant discounts for the second (25% reduction) and third (50% reduction) children enrolled from the one family. There are no fees for the fourth and subsequent school children.

Diocesan Building Levy

The Diocesan Building Levy enables us, through our capital works program, to meet the demand for new schools and new classes in high growth areas, and to continue to maintain all schools to a high standard.

All families with one or more children in a Parramatta Diocesan school or at St Dominic's College Kingswood are required to pay the annual Diocese of Parramatta Diocesan Building Levy. This levy has replaced the various building levies that parents previously paid to school building funds (managed by either parishes or schools). The levy for 2017 is $756 per family, payable in three equal instalments of $252 payable in Terms 1, 2 and 3.


School-Based Fees

Resource, Activity & Excursion / Incursion Fees 2017 (Non Refundable): $285.00 per pupil per year and covers the cost of the following:

  • craft materials, Literacy material, Mathematics equipment, folders, exercise books, photocopying and some stationery each child needs over the year. (Children may be expected to supply tissues, pencils, rubbers, rulers etc.)
  • technology infrastructure and resourcing at Mary Immaculate
  • cost of bus and pool entry for the annual swimming carnival (Years 3‐6), athletics carnival (K‐6), Life Education and incursions (visits of educational programs to Mary Immaculate), and class excursions throughout the year.

Please note: The cost of the Year 6 Canberra trip, Year 5 Camp, and Bathurst excursion or representative sport events are not covered by this fee.


School Fee Accounts

Flexible Payment Options

Flexible payment options are offered to all families. This provides you with the opportunity to select a payment method and plan that best suits your circumstances. School fee payment methods include cash, cheque, direct debit, credit card, EFTPOS, BPAY, Australia Post BPAY and deductions from Centrelink payments. Payments can also be made on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis at no additional charge and by arrangement with the School Finance Officer.


Outstanding Fees

A reminder notice for outstanding fees will be sent 30 days from the date of the original statement. However, if you encounter unexpected changes to your financial circumstances that may make it difficult to pay your fees on time, please make an immediate appointment with the Principal, who will respond to your situation with care and confidentiality. You may also need to bring supporting documents to show your financial situation.
